Skeensp maybe you can add this: to check the PSU rails.......

+5V: ~4% (+4,8V ~ +5,2V)
-5V: ~10% (-4,5V ~ -5,5V)
+12V: ~5% (+11,4V ~ +12,6V)
-12V: ~10% (-10,8V ~ -13,2V)
+3,3V: ~4% (+3,15V ~ +3,45V)

And that (especially the 12V) rails have enough Amps, 18 is about the minimum for the 12V+...

Great sticky, man! I was just thinking we needed something like this. Micutzu's sticky was lacking on this part of things. We should have had this ages ago...

I couldn't overclock my system for the first 6 weeks because of my raid adapter, not sure why but it is fine now, I did set pci to 33mhz and agp to 66mhz but made no diffrence, so ripped raid out and bang straight upto 2.37ghz I went :-)

This is alot better than most of the stickys nice one Skeensp

That's not entirely true that no newbies read the stickies. When I came here last spring I read every single sticky and guide (not to mention tons of other posts) before I ever posted here. But that's just cause I knew nothing about hardware or overclocking before I came here. I mean... I was gonna build an intel system just so I could have PC4400 ram heheh. Glad I didn't.
Now I'm pretty happy with my system.

This is a great guide btw... there's no worse feeling then overclocking and having your major investment of time and money stop working on you with no idea what to do.

hey, im having problems.
I have a t-bird 1ghz and a hewlett-P mobo(Asus a7v-vm)
since the mobo wont let me oc, i am changing the multipliers by using the L6 bridge mods. and i can get into bios fine (1200mhz). but its not letting me boot into windows.. i get an error, or sometimes it wont even display anything, like a black screen.

i got a Speeze WhisperrockII with AS5
and im running with a FSB of 100 and multi of 12 at 1.8v. (default 1.75)

though i havent even tried loading at default to check if my mods were correct...

I need some advice on overclocking my amd 64 3000+ /asus k8v-se deluxe mobo. I have currently one set of dual channel 512 pc333 ram and a stick of 512 pc2700 ram. I was wondering how much it could be overclocked before needing to look for cooling solutions? I was wondering what settings/ multipliers ppl have used on this type system to get a decent boost in cpu speed? Thanks

Excellent guide Keep it up

Edit: Stickies make it easy to find things. The search seems bugged sometimes.

yeah it's a good sticky, and despite the fact that my last few systems have not had these kinds of problems, i can see how others (noob's) can benefit from this. in addition, people should remember to connect the 4 pin power cord to the mobo.

as "deamon64" mentioned, these noob's ask "annoying" questions. i'm sorry you feel that way deamon64.

i guess you were one of those lucky people that was born knowing everything about everything. and as such, natuarally, you wouldn't be able to empathize with the 'annoying noob' because you never went through a phase where you needed help from others. i guess you never had help from people that really worked things out for you. and now, after getting that help, you would like to give something back to the community. you never went through this because, i propose, you were born with all the knowledge you ever needed. or, if i may propose another theory, you're a jackass.

please don't give noob's a hard time. we were all noob's at one time, and it's hard to post on a forum when you have no idea what you are talking about, but you want to learn. i sincerely appreciate the time that people take to answer my questions because they are doing it out of their own good will. we really don't need people like deamon64, even if he does know more than i do. imho
